Retraction of ‘Cd induces G2/M cell cycle arrest by up-regulating miR-133b via directly targeting PPP2R2D in L02 hepatocytes’ by Yujing Zhang et al., Metallomics, 2018, 10, 1510–1523.


The authors, Yujing Zhang, Fang Xiao, Caigao Zhong, Ming Zeng and Lianhong Zou, hereby wholly retract this Metallomics paper. New results have found the opposite expression tendency of miR-133b, which is the key regulator in the current article (DOI: 10.1039/C8MT00243F) and therefore contradicts the conclusion in this paper.

As the findings are unreliable and the results are not reproducible, we are therefore retracting this article to maintain the accuracy of the scientific record.

This retraction is endorsed by Jeanne Andres, Executive Editor, Metallomics. Retraction published 24th October 2018.
